Before They Were Stars: Russell Crowe in a Stage Production of “The Rocky Horror Show”

I know this is probably a day late since many people love to celebrate Halloween with a viewing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to post one of the most obscure pieces of “Before They Were Stars” footage I could find. Russell Crowe is probably not the first actor you would ever envision singing and performing in a stage version of The Rocky Horror Show, but believe it or not, that was his first professional role. Back in 1986, Crowe was cast in the dual role of Dr. Everett Scott and Eddie in an acclaimed theatrical production of the show that wound up touring New Zealand and Australia for two years. Over two decades later, I’m delighted that rare handheld footage of these peformances still exists for your viewing pleasure.
